Sports are pretty fun, getting a ball from one place to another place and all of that stuff. However, sports-related injuries are an all too real threat to players of all shapes and sizes. Nothing would end your football career quicker than a brain killing concussion received when some big ole dude knocked you over on the football court. However, not to worry, wearable...

This week is Google’s big, and yearly, I/O Conference. This is the place when Google unveils lots of new goodies, but moreover, this is the place where other companies unveil new goodies that work with Google products. The big question going into this year’s conference was how much presence will Google’s recently announced Android Wear platform...

There are coming to be two kinds of smartwatches, those that seek to emulate what your phone does, only with a smaller and wearable form factor, and those that seek to make you healthier. The former is obvious because, well, that’s what started the whole thing. The latter also makes a heap of sense, given that a watch basically rests right on your pulse, which makes keeping a constant eye on...

People have always wondered why Superman had the need for such subterfuge with the hidden identity and all. After all, it’s not as if he had a family or anything. He had some random coworkers and a girl he had a crush on. Still, I can see the allure. Pretend you are lesser than so when you bust through with your full potential people will be all the more wowed. That’s the idea behind this...

The smartwatch battle has, thus far, been a fairly contained one. Sure, Samsung, Pebble and some other companies have thrown out some initial volleys, but many armchair critics say that no true technology battle can get underway until Apple weighs in. As such, there has constantly been rumors and speculation that Apple was creating their very own smartwatch. These rumors eventually turned into verifiable facts, with a proposed October launch date, although the company hasn’t officially announced anything. Now actual details about...

We all need all the help we can get to help us get off of our keisters and get those keisters to the gym, or street or wherever else we happen to do that thing we call “exercise.” Thus, the wearable technology industry has made it a point to release a bevy of useful fitness trackers, be they in the form of an armband or, well, usually an armband. However,...

Stress, otherwise known as the silent killer or just that thing we go through every single day, can be quite annoying. Not only can it lead to depression and its cousin anxiety, but it can also ruin an otherwise perfectly good Sunday. We humans living in the modern age need to learn how to relax, in other words. However, it seems to getting more and more difficult....

Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink, someone once said. Sure, we have no idea who that someone was, but they sure were right. Human beings need water to survive, even more than food(much to the chagrin of the fast food industry.) Even worse? Many of us don’t drink enough water on a day-to-day basis and have no idea. We go through our lives thinking...

There will come a time, not too far in the future, when the very notion of having different wearables for different uses will become quaint and ridiculous. You will have one item, say an armband, and it will do each and every thing your imagination can muster up. Companies are already trying to make that happen. Look at the smartwatch. How many smartwatches also...

For all of this talk of wearable technology, the ‘wearable’ aspect usually comes in one of a handful of varieties. There are smart watches, sure, which go on your wrist. The same can be said of fitness tracking armbands and the like. There are also plenty of tech-heavy eyewear devices, like Google’s Glass and the Oculus Rift. But what of actual...
